As Morning Light Glows in the Eastern Sky | Lakshmi Rameshwar Rao

Saturday 4 February 2023


A Future of White

If a past is grey and circumstances seem black,
A future of white can well be distilled,
If the being fills with light (Haiku, adapted, 2007)

Proof of Rock

Let us go then all of us,
As morning light glows in the eastern sky,
Cleaning blood from psychiatric stables,
Winnowing in biblical fables,
Baptist’s prophecy,
Jordan anointed Superstar ministry. (In honorarium, 2007)

Quitipin Quirk

It is not in the realms of previous psychotic speeds that are dared,
Nor primordial fears of snakes and other psychic allusions not to be shared
But rather in pharmaceutical interventions that now ensnare,
That the being is slowed down and judgment impaired. (NIMHANS UNIT II)

Right and Wrong

Right action for wrong,
Rights the wrong,
With ease, in easy song
Truth’s own sight
Gives the mite a mite
Beckons the beacon’s
Blinding beam of light
Compelling in its mighty might.

— Lakshmi Rameshwar Rao
